This website is currently on hiatus while I build The World of Christine Stoddard, the new ChristineStoddard.com. The multimedia website will feature a variety of my writings, visual art, and performances. Once it goes up, all of my other blogs will re-direct to it.

I'm Alice in Wonderland incarnate. Even at my most cynical moments, I still see beauty in everything. Perhaps that's because I have an unconventional sense of aesthetics. I cherish what many deem plain or even ugly. But so little in this world matches society's narrow definitions of beauty that, according to those standards at least, there's more to hate than love. And despite my sarcastic comments from time to time, I'm a lover, not a hater.
